Jo Anne: My passion is to help women grow in their Christian faith and live a life that matters. I am currently focused on teachers who are using the curriculum from the International School Project. Our Movement Launch Training helps participants deepen their walk with God and obtain ministry training in basic evangelism and discipleship skills. New leaders learn that through their dependence on God they can be a part of His plan to reach their nation with the Gospel. They go back home to establish local Teachers’ Movement Communities. These become the place for fellowship and support, where educators grow professionally and spiritually as they seek to reach their colleagues, and in turn, their country, with the Gospel.
Russ: I stand in the gap between what people currently have and what they need to succeed. That includes the gap between non-Christians and missionaries, the misunderstandings between cultures, and the distance between the technology-rich and the techno-poor. I can’t think of a more exciting way to use my skills and experience. Encouraging Christians workers and equipping them with technology and leadership training is the highlight of my job. I focus specifically on emerging missions leaders who are moving into positions that require both leadership skills and operations experience.
